James Hally

James Hally, who has spent his entire life in the city of Detroit, was born July 6, 1870, a member of a family of six children, four of whom are living. His parents, John and Bridget (Shaughnessy) Hally, were both natives of Ireland, but spent the greater part of their lives in America; the mother died March 25, 1885. The father has been a resident of Michigan from the age of eight years, living upon a farm until he was sixteen, after which he learned the machine molding trade and worked at same for several years. For three years he was a member of the police force of Detroit and he is at present employed in the Detroit Copper & Brass Rolling Mills.

After leaving school, at the age of fourteen, James I. Hally entered the Michigan car shops for the purpose of learning the sheet iron trade, but having a desire to become a sailor he left this place and entered the employ of the Dry Dock Engine Works. A year later he went on the Volunteer, where he served as greaser for three seasons, and the accepted a like position on the City of Alpena, remaining on that vessel for one season. The following two years he was second engineer on the tug Sumner, and for a short time in the fall was on the Rhoda Stewart in the same capacity. During the seasons of 1896 and 1897 he held the berth of second engineer on the Andaste. Through diligence and precision Mr. Hally has worked his way upward to a position of responsibility and justly deserved the greatest confidence of his employers and friendship of a large circle of acquaintances. Fraternally he is a member of the Marine Engineers Beneficial Association No. 3, of Detroit..

Volume I

This version of Volume II is based, with permission, on the work of the great volunteers at the Marine Captains Biographies site. To them goes the credit for reorganizing the content into some coherent order. The biographies in the original volume are in essentially random order.

Some of the transcription work was also done by Brendon Baillod, who maintains an excellent guide to Great Lakes Shipwreck Research.
